Changing course, Russia now aims to overthrow the Ukrainian government

Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov (72) has said contrary to earlier reports that Russia’s intention is to overthrow the government of Ukraine. “We are certainly helping the Ukrainian people to free themselves from a regime that is completely hostile to the people and history,” Lavrov said in Cairo on Sunday. Russian and Ukrainian people will live together.

In the past few days, the Russian leadership has publicly tightened its stance on the war in Ukraine. On Wednesday, Lavrov threatened to invade other areas outside the Donbass. Given Western arms supplies and their long distances, it is necessary to further push Kiev troops away from Donetsk and Luhansk regions in eastern Ukraine, which Moscow has recognized as independent.
